    "you don't look for me, I always Look For you"

    Its what people constantly tell me. I never reach out to people, i never or rarely call people or ask to hang out. It's a problem that i'm dealing with. very very very slowly. i mean..SLOW. because i constantly go back 20 steps after taking one forward. Whoever I've hurt in the...

    β€œTo have a friend and be a friend is what

    HI ANYONE! I'd like to have a friend

    who I can tell everything to, and you could tell anything to me. I don't want this to be a quick thing. I am truly looking for genuine people. Preferably female, so I know how to talk to them, but anyone is okay! :)

    I Sure Do!

    I think I can speak for some who've been burned by "friends" who ditched them because they were considered "boring." Honestly, I'd like to make a few close friends who not only need my friendship but genuinely want to be my friend. Oh, it goes without saying that I don't need...

    Will I Ever Achieve That???

    So, I want friends who would never leave me under any circumstances unless they are dead. Is it too much to ask for? I don't think so.

    Didn't Last Forever

    I always wished for a long lasting friendship. I had one but it only lasted for eight years until she died. It was one of the hardest time for me. No one can replace her but I do hope I find another friend as her.

    Meh..

    I've never had a friendship that lasted any longer than 2-4 years. We'd meet and be 'besties forever' until we went to seperate schools and completely stopped talking. I've always lost people like that. It used to be a sad goodbye, but now I expect it. It's happened before and I...

    Lasting Friendships

    The only real lasting friendship I have is with my boyfriend.  I can tell anything to him , be myself in front of him , and always know he is there for me.  My "friends"  all left me either when I had my kids or once I got into the Juggalette lifestyle.

    I don't care what you believe,

    what race you are, what your sexual orientation is, all I care about is your personality. Nice, funny, kind, caring, compassionate, sarcastic, humorous, and supportive are all I look for in someone:)
